Description:
From Reclaim the Records, the NYC Marriage Index was shared to the world on the Internet Archive. Unlike the marriage certificate index that has been available for years, this index is for the Application, Affidavit, and License record group. These records include the addresses of the witnesses, the towns of birth for bride and groom, countries of birth of the parents, former spouses and divorce information, and the bride's occupation. Sometimes a license was filled out but no marriage took place as well, so that would provide even more information about the lives of our ancestors.

Some of these pages have 100 records on them. Be aware that you must complete all of the names so allow yourself time for indexing. Partial indexing is not an option.
Instructions:
Fill in "Groom" or "Bride" for gender. Grooms are on the left side page, brides are on the right. (If you see one that seems wrong, just label it by the side of the page.)
If there is a middle initial, or multiple given names, fill them all into the Given Name field. Do not use a period after the initials. Put spaces between multiple initials.
List the months as they are shown, or alternatively with the more modern abbreviation for the month.
If you find a year other than 1929, please submit a problem report for that image so that can be added in later.
